of the state. we will see what kind of "margin call, obama has here. host: voting systems in your state, how do you vote? guest: i voted two weeks ago. we have early voting and starts three weeks before the election. you can vote early. about one-third of the total votes cast will be cast before election day. a lot of the stuff that's happening right now in terms of trying to influence voters is wasted, because a lot of people have already voted. you can vote in your present before the election and then we have -- we vote in precincts across the state in every corner of the state by machine. host: if there were any issues and a recount was necessary, how does that work in iowa? guest: we do have a procedure for a recount. if an election is within 2 percentage points, it's an automatic recount. you can petition for a recount if it if it is a little larger than that. so there's a possibility of a recount. we have never had that and it's never decided an election, but there are procedures in place to have a recount. we anticipate this election will be close enough for that could be a

electoral votes. right now its unemployment rathe 5.7%. and president obama won this state by a large margin back in 2008 with 9%. let's begin with top issues for new hampshire voters. guest: good morning. and before i get started i want to thank c-span and c-span radio on 15 years being on the year. it's been a very valuable resource for some of us. up here in new hampshire we are a swing state four electoral votes. it sound like a small number. but if al gore had won the four votes he would have become president. so they are very important and this state right now is a toss up. the issues are a little bit different here in new hampshire than they would be across the country. unlike a state like nevada that has a higher unemployment rate, new hampshire is at 5.7%. that's higher than it was all summer around 5.2%. this means that jobs and the economy is an issue that is front and center and it is the number one issue but it may not ring home as much as other issues. host: what areas of new hampshire are the swing areas of that state historically, have provided the winner with th

than barack obama but i do not think it will make a difference in any state unless we have three, four, five states that are squeakers and then you get in a situation like 2000 with ralph nader. as far as gary johnson's real impact, let's put it in context. since libertarians have run for president in the modern era, they have only one more than 1% a single time, i think it is 1980 when mr. clark was running against reagan and jimmy carter. otherwise they get about a half a percent or less of the national vote. even ron paul got half a percent, a belief, when he ran in 1988. so we are not talking about a whole lot of votes. so, they could be critical votes in certain states that are very close. we have an independent in virginia, former congressman virgil goode who once represented the area i am in right now, fifth district of virginia. he was a very popular congressman. he lost a reelection in 2008 in the obama wave by just a tiny number of votes, about 700. it was the closest congressional race in the entire country in 2008. he's got strong support on the north carolina border. he is

iran, israel, and the united states," published in 2007, and has a new book this year called "the single roll of the dice: obama's diplomacy with iran." , both from yale university press. i should say that all these panelists are also quoted in the major media frequently, so that's another thing. i don't mention about each one at a time, but all of them. >> thank you so much. it's a great pleasure being here. i think it's going to be quite an interesting q&a following this. i'm going to cut my talks a little bit short and just go on to some of the most important points and then leave as much as possible for a discussion afterwards. the panel asked what ways have the united states or the g-16 been able to get close to some of its objectives and have effective policies vis-a-vis iran. it's a good question, because it reminds us to ask ourselves, what are the objections? the objections that oftentimes are talked about tends to be microobjectives, very tactical, and we tend to forget the larger strategic picture. if we look at the larger strategic picture, making sure that iran does n
